Made up words can be fun. At the least; they can make you think. Have you seen the bags with the word “buy-o-logy” painted upon them? Is that the art of buying stuff? Webster says “ology” is the thought to need a large amount of special knowledge. I suppose it’s important to know a lot about the object you are buying.
Will you take the time to research the thing you are buying? Where can you find the best price? Will it accomplish the purpose for which you are buying it? How long should it last? If it breaks; is there a warranty on it? Will I be the only one using it? How much space will it require? Maybe buy-o-logy should be a word.
What if we had Word-o-logy? A large amount of special knowledge about God’s Word? Will you study to show yourself approved unto God, a man or woman who rightly divides the word of truth? Will you take the time to research the deeper things of God? The price has been payed. It will accomplish the purpose for which it was written.
Jesus is the Word; so it will last forever. His Word is solid and will break the chains that bind you. The warranty of the promises will never end. They will endure forever. The only space it will require is your whole heart. Word-o-logy should definitely be a word.
Many people have large amounts of knowledge about God’s Word; however, they don’t have a relationship with the One who wrote it. They have a form of godliness but deny the power therein.
In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. If we have an intimate relationship with the Word Incarnate, our lives will look different from the unsaved.
When our flesh expires; our souls will go to be with the Lord forever. There’s no expiration date on eternal life. Eternal life was bought and paid for by Jesus, when He died on the cross and rose from the grave.
Prayer in Motion:
Lord, help me to pour into Your Word, not only for the knowledge of it; but for a deeper relationship with You. You are the Word. I long to know You intimately, to seek Your face and hear Your voice saying, “This is the way. Walk in it.” In Jesus Name. Amen.
